Why isn’t it enough to allow our goal to be, “Read the Bible each day this month”? Why do we have to set lofty goals we may become discouraged by? #GoalsTweet
I just spent an amazing time riding home using an “Uber Ministry”. It was an amazing time of being uplifted and reminded that God is smiling, as a result of our worship. We chose to lift up His name and encourage one another in our faith. And, it was so amazing – friends! And, it got me thinking. It made me WANT to read my Bible!
As I sit here, I am very much reminded that I set lofty goals in my Bible reading and end up more discouraged and off track rather than encouraged. My goal today was to “pick out” a Bible reading plan to commit to doing for X number of days.
But, here is the thing. I don’t think this is what the Lord Jesus Christ wants from me. Would picking a section of Scripture to study BLESS my relationship with Christ? Absolutely.
But given my health, I don’t think it is realistic. Just as I would LOVE to daily posts or be consistent in posting devotions, I would absolutely love to and it would bless my relationship with Christ.
Even so: The only goal, in my Bible reading and ministry, is – to seek Him all the days of my life. How am I choosing to seek Him and be in His Word each day? How can I post to encourage others, when I have the energy to do so?
